Annual MSSF Mendocino Fall Camp/Foray. Five years ago we returned the camp experience to our roots of: "The 3 F's" (Food-Forays-&-Fun). We will have the very popular Saturday afternoon appetizer cooking demonstration, plus we will also continue to provide speakers for both Friday and Saturday evenings. We have arranged to have the same great chef and caterer return to cook for us again this year. Last but not least, Curt will conduct his legendary raffle but this year will be his last so don't miss out on it. Our guest speaker (Friday) this year at camp will be Richard Kerrigan, author and Agaricus mushroom expert. On Saturday evening Robert Rogers, author, and medicinal mushroom expert will be our presenter. more info...
In the San Francisco Bay Area, when the first rains tease up the chanterelles and porcini, fungus lovers head to the Fungus Fair: A Celebration of Wild Mushrooms.
Hands-on activities at the Fungus Fair include crafts, mushroom dyes, and do-it-your-self mushroom growing kits.
We have many educational tables on varied subjects such as:
• Identification table - bring your specimens to find out what you found! • medicinal mushrooms • myco-remediation • cultivation • ecology • lichens • psychedelic fungi • toxicology • microscopes and spore prints
There will be a naturalistic woodland display and tables with more than 300 identified species of locally collected fungi.
Dogs or other pets are not allowed inside the SF County Fair Building, with the exception of service/guide dogs (City Ordinance 603-81, Park Code 5.02).
